Fiona Robins, Claire Donnelly and Courtney Naliboff founded their band Bait Bag in the spring of 2018 on the island of North Haven. The group’s first EP is now available.

Needing catharsis after being weighed down by constant bad news, the three women got together to make loud noises confidently and sloppily. Inspired by the riot grrrl movement and anything loud, fun and inclusive, Bait Bag debuted at Calderwood Hall in October.

Bait Bag's songs are intended to empower and excite … or at least give other frustrated people something to flail around to. The tunes are written by Naliboff; and produced by her and her husband William Trevaskis. People can download the album for free/name-your-price at; or stream it at For more information, email
